Lenovo will debut its new high-end tablet for its domestic market, China, in a few days from now. However, an online retail site claims to have it up for pre-orders for a price in US dollars ahead of this event. In more concrete pre-launch tips, the OEM has revealed that it will come with a custom magnetic keyboard dock.

Lenovo has dropped increasingly strong hints that it will release the Tab P12 Pro to its native market, re-branded as a member of the Xiaoxin series that is prevalent there, very soon. None of the exhaustive series of Weibo posts have even suggested a price for the Pad Pro 12.6 as yet; however, the device has now appeared on GizTop, available to ship from November 11, 2021 at a price of US$599.

According to this new listing, the tablet has acquired a slightly different look compared to its putative global variant: it comes in silver as opposed to the Tab P12 Pro's darker gray, and has a re-designed camera hump that excludes the flash found in that of the pre-existing tablet.

Otherwise, GizTop mostly concurs with Lenovo's official leaks on the subject of the Xiaoxin Pad Pro 12.6's specs. It lists the device, offered in the P12 Pro's starting 6GB RAM SKU, as having an E4 AMOLED display driven by the Snapdragon 870 SoC.

Then again, there are some slight contradictions that might result from one or two typos in its description: the retailer refers to both 90Hz and 120Hz refresh rates throughout the Pad Pro 12.6's new page, although Lenove has confirmed the latter for the tablet in question.

Furthermore, GizTop claims the device will launch with ZUI 12.5, whereas the OEM has made it clear an upgrade for this OS will debut at its upcoming event. Finally, the site claims the device comes with a type-C cable in the box only, whereas the OEM has now revealed the existence of a "dual-mode" magnetic keyboard dock that may or may not come in the box sent to its Chinese buyers.

These discrepancies should be ironed out in just 2 days from today (October 31, 2021), however, when the Xiaoxin Pad Pro 12.6 launches alongside other devices such as the Yoga 16s 2022.
